EVERY NOW AND THEN every now and then, a wave comes through last night I dreamed of you and in the light, I feel you still I know I always will but for a moment I will cry again my heart will break, I’m asking why because I miss you so much sometimes every now and then, I hear you sing and I feel the love that you bring here in your voice, it’s you and me I know it always will be but for a moment I will cry my heart will break, I’m asking why because I miss you so much sometimes you were a character in a book in my dream your son told me where to look and that in the big picture things aren’t what they seem every now and then, you’re here so strong but I cannot hold you for long then you’re off to another place it’s so strange I’ll never see your face and for a moment I will cry again my heart will break, I’m asking why because I miss you so much sometimes c Linda Worster 2006

RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW after all these years, I have found you. now I know what I’ve been waiting for after all these years, I hear the sound of your voice and I recognize your face. I’m not waiting anymore right here, right now, I will love you right here, right now, we can begin the time for yearning is over right here, right now, we can win after all this time, I can touch you and smile into your heart, so real after all this time, there’s so much to say and now I know a way to tell you how I feel. right here, right now, I will love you right here, right now, we can begin the time for yearning is over right here, right now, we can win after all these tears, I’m tasting laughter darkness is spilling into light after all these tears, I’m not wasting any time here is some poetry that rhymes and feels so right after all these years, no more fantasies flesh and bone have needs to hold you after all these years, I’m ready to move on as I create this song, I am bold to say right here, right now, I will love you right here, right now, we can begin the time for yearning is over right here, right now, we both win c Linda Worster 1991

A RAGGED APOLOGY I’m sorry… I’m sorry, I did it again. It’s my fault. Do you think we could still be friends? I never said I was perfect. So why’re you getting mad at me? I’m just as much of a loser as anybody else but I’m really not trying to be. So just listen for a minute to what I’ve got to say and you’ll maybe get a different slant. Cause when I get obnoxious, you can walk away from me but I can’t. And I’m sorry… I’m sorry, I did it again. It’s my fault. Do you think we could still be friends? I know I wake up in the morning kind of ugly, but it goes away in a bit. Don’t you know, I’m really a wonderful human being though I sometimes act like a twit. And I know that you’re trying to love me. Well, I’m trying to love me too. Oh darlin’ believe me, because I know it’s not the easiest thing to do. And I’m sorry… I’m sorry, I did it again. It’s my fault. Do you think we could still be friends? c Linda Worster 1979

EVERYTHING HERE IS ALRIGHT verse one: I want this night to last forever the smell of the flowers and your hand in mine sun slipping slowly over the mountains and me looking into your eyes verse two: I want this feeling always to linger the quiet… colors of every hue wandering peacefully into the nighttime in paradise with you chorus: gold shades everywhere there’s no time… no care… in the world filled with heavenly light everything here is alright verse three: midsummer evening here is the always your loving faces live in my heart moments of beauty have brought us together and nothing can take that apart chorus: gold shades everywhere there’s no time… no care… in the world filled with heavenly light everything here is alright c Linda Worster 2001

CHANCE OF A LIFETIME by Mitch Blake when the chance of a lifetime comes your way, comes your way when the love you have dreamed of appears resist… but just gently, resist all your fears when the love you have dreamed of appears a star from the sky that was yours filled your dreams but your prayers and your hopes went unanswered, it seems for once in your life… take a chance… take a chance your love stands before you revealed your mind is unsure, but your heart knows the way to follow the path once concealed you dreamed of a star you could hold in your hands now your wish has come true and before you love stands when the chance of a lifetime comes your way, comes your way when the love you have dreamed of appears resist… but just gently, resist all your fears when the love you have dreamed of appears love, bright as a star and as full as the moon now has opened your heart and like a flower, you bloom when the chance of a lifetime comes your way comes your way……..

THAT’S ALL c Linda Worster 1978 I don’t care what it was you did. It’s time you were unlocking all the feelings that you hid Don’t be afraid of a you that will show Just let it flow. Let it go I don’t love you just because you’re nice to me I don’t love you only when you smile And I don’t love you just because of all the beautiful things that you do I just love you I just love you because you are you That’s all. Just because you are you. I know how it feels to be tired and confused It’s living and dying and you have to choose And sometimes it seems like there’s no difference between the two Oh but I don’t love you only when you’re not afraid I don’t love you just because I should And I don’t love you just because sometimes you make me feel so good I just love you I just love you because you are you That’s all. Just because you are you. It’s ok if we’re angry or hurt But hanging on to those feelings only makes them worse We could have loved ourselves and turned it to hate But everyone has their share of mistakes I don’t love you only when you’re right I don’t hate you when you’re wrong And I don’t love you only when you’re feeling strong… it’s true I just love you I just love you because you are you That’s all. Just because you are you.

DIFFERENT FROM THE REST when you rub your fuzzy face on mine, it turns me inside out you seem to think you’re the queen of the world and in my mind, there’s no doubt even though it looks like there is no one home when I gaze into your eyes you don’t fool me, I know you’re a somebody in a furry disguise but I say, “you are my kitty and I am your human” I always tell you, you’re the best because I know that you expect to hear that you are somehow different from the rest “more food, more food, more food, more food” is your constant complaint “can’t you see you’re starving me” you comment with little restraint “more food, more food, more food, more food, more food, more food, more food, more food, it must be absolutely fresh” you’ve got a figure like a barrel, still you’re rubbing out your request because you are my kitty and I am your human sometimes I wonder who’s really in control I know you let me think I’m the one who calls the shots as you’re herding me to your dinner bowl in and out, in and out, you’re at the door one more time in or out, out or in, you just can’t make up your mind but I get the big payoff when you consent to sit on my lap when you’re curled up- warm and fuzzy- taking yet another nap the way you let me hold you- sometimes- as long as I don’t cling the way you sit beside me when you like the way I sing you are my kitty and I am your human you’ve seen me at my worst and at my best seems no matter what I do, you remain unimpressed.. but I know you think that somehow, I am different from the rest c Linda Worster 1989

TOO MUCH THINKING by Linda Worster c 1982 I woke up this morning with a head full of rot there wasn’t even half a space for any decent thought so I chased myself around a while and I began to see it’s trouble when you take yourself too seriously too much thinking is bound to make you crazy give you stomach trouble, make your vision hazy won’t somebody tell me how to turn off this brain the journey would be quiet and I’d get there just the same so I went out to take a walk, you know.. really get it straight Nature’s voice is getting lost in this endless debate there’s choruses of demons… they begin to cheer choirs of angels but they begin to sneer chorus I finally got it figured out, it turned itself around I just stand and scratch my head as it turns me upside down so I circled back the other way to get another point of view with my maturity prevailing and nothing left to do

listening 05:46
LISTENING I did it again. I’m sorry, I interrupted. you were telling me about you I’m trying to listen but I get distracted I’m hearing those voices saying they know what’s true… for you and then I forget to hear you and you feel disrespected. I think you think you know it all and I’m clinging to what I expected… can we remember to love more? it’s the only thing on this earth we are here for can we remember who we were before? can we remember to love more? you did it again and now I must let go of the idea that you always listen to me we need forgiveness, I admit, I reacted to what I was afraid of what I think you think you might see….. and you feel whatever you feel and we both feel lost and lonely caught in this circle of fear and despair saying over and over… “if only….” can we remember to love more? it’s the only thing on this earth we are here for can we remember who we were before? can we remember to love more? I see where this goes I see how we all have responsibility in this world what do we choose to take in or exclude? we all require air… love… light… water… and food… and as one world together, we can turn from fear and greed as one world, we listen to what everyone everywhere needs can we remember to love more? it’s the only thing on this earth we are here for can we remember who we were before? can we remember to love more? c Linda Worster 1997

HEAL MY HEART Jesus my brother, come, heal my heart. There’s a peace missing, it’s falling apart. And my life’s leaking out through the hole left behind- leaving me empty, helpless and blind. While I am empty, Lord fill me. While I am blind teach me to see. And while I am helpless come take my part. Jesus my brother, heal my heart. There’s a sea of emotion, I’m caught in a storm, churning with feelings, tangled and torn. My love built a ship. It was swept off and lost. Now it lies broken twisted and tossed. I am an ocean Lord, walk upon me. Calm the waves of this pounding sea. And when the sun rises we’ll be right at the start. Jesus my brother, heal my heart. Jesus, my brother, come to me now. This wound needs to close Lord and I don’t know how. My bandages fail me, they’re only pretend. Illusions are torn before feelings can mend. Breathe on me Jesus. I know you can heal it. If pain is my teacher I’m ready to feel it. And make of my pieces a work of your art. Jesus my brother, heal my heart. Heal my heart. c Linda Worster 1978

already free 05:04
ALREADY FREE if you live this life long enough, you’re gonna lose again and again people you love, all of your stuff… it’s only a matter of when they say the pain is less when you can accept it… being here is joyful and sad because all forms come and go as I am watching the show I don’t mean to pain this picture so dark. simply I am trying to say what is real and what I do know- right on the mark- not what I think or feel I know it’s all gonna change… that’s it’s precious somehow… that wherever I go, it’s always now… I know the Spirit in you is the Spirit in me… and we are already free if we live this life long enough, we’re gonna win again and again what is our choice and what is our luck? how can we be so wise and so stuck? when we know I know it’s all gonna change… that’s it’s precious somehow… that wherever we go, it’s always now… and the Spirit in you is also in me… and we are already free c Linda Worster 2004

ONE WORD (old lyrics) Be still and listen till only one voice can be heard Be still and listen to one song one word Be touched and be healed receive the light and the sound Be touched and be healed believe that love is all around and know that I love you… it's all I've been trying to say know that I love you… but trying and talking keep blocking the way Be still and listen till only one voice can be heard Be still and listen to one song one word C Linda Worster 1981
